3 REASONS WHY YOUR SKIN IS DULL
Does your skin feel like it's lost its radiance? Are you feeling like your skin is dull and texture could be improved? Here are 3 reasons why your skin is dull and what you can do about it in a few easy steps:
1. It’s dry and dehydrated - Apart from drinking more water, one of the fastest and easiest ways you can instantly plump and hydrate your skin is by adding Hyaluronic Acid into your skincare routine.
Look for a hydrating Hyaluronic Acid serum like Super Hydrator which helps to bind water to your skin and hold moisture to leave it looking more healthier, hydrated and radiant. Keep dry, flaking skin texture at bay by using skincare ingredients that are “emollients” - example: olive squalane, which mimics your skin’s natural oils, a great ingredient ideal for even oily skin concerns to help keep skin moisturised, soft and balanced. 💧
2. Excess dead skin cells - Dead skin cells can build up on the surface of your face so it is crucial to maintain radiance by exfoliating away dead skin cells to reveal brighter, new skin underneath.
Skincare experts recommend you exfoliate at a minimum of once a week and up to 2-3 times a week. Choose between chemical exfoliants (Salicylic, Glycolic, Lactic, Fruit acids) or physical exfoliants (ground adzuki beans, clay, jojoba beads etc) like Exfoliating Pink Clay Mask. Be careful not to over exfoliate and always follow with a good hydrating, repairing moisturiser or serum to balance skin after exfoliating.
3. Not enough blood circulation can make skin look tired and dull - Poor blood flow means your skin cells can’t get all the oxygen and nutrients it needs so get active, stay hydrated and keep stress in check. Facial tools like gua shas and facial rollers can help relax muscles and stimulate blood circulation for glowing skin ✨
